The West Country region
The beautiful rugged coastline of Southern Cornwall, combined with its rich history, makes this area of the West Country a fantastic holiday location.
If the walks and beaches of the immediate area around Polruan are not enough to keep you busy during your stay, then Polruan is ideally placed for visiting the many attractions nearby including the Eden project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and the Monkey Sanctuary, as well as some of the other pretty towns and villages nearby, such as Lerryn, Lostwithiel, Looe, Polperro and Mevigissey. If you fancy venturing further afield, then Truro with its impressive cathedral is worth a visit, and the Northern Cornish coast is only an hour away, meaning the delights of Padstow and the surf of Watergate Bay are all within easy reach!
Quayside House is located down on The Quay in the unspoilt village of Polruan, on the Southern Cornish coast. The village nestles on the eastern side of the mouth of the river Fowey, with the fashionable town of Fowey across on the other side of the estuary.
Polruan offers guests two good pubs, the Lugger and the Russell, both of which also serve food. There is a grocery store with a good stock of basics, a small café, and the Winklepicker shop, which sells a wide variety of holiday essentials including ice cream and rock and which also houses a sub Post Office. There are some stunning walks around the village, on to the old blockhouse, up to the cliffs, and on to Lantic Bay to name but a few, and the views around the village over the estuary and out to sea are truly breathtaking.
Take the quick, easy ferry trip across the river and you can enjoy all Fowey has to offer, with some great shops and restaurants, as well as more beaches and a great cove for paddling and swimming down at Readymoney Cove.

Exactly what it says on the tin. No hiccups, very helpful owners, lovely position, very well appointed. Highly recommended.

"An excellent house in an unsurpassable location"
The house is large and airy and unusually well equipped. The views from every window are superb. The fascination of watching the boats bobbing in the harbour and the foot ferry passing to and from Fowey never faded. The pub next door, the Lugger, has just changed hands adn the new landlord is friendly adn the food is excellent. The pub behind the house, the Russell Inn also does good food, the largest piece of cod I have ever seen, and a good pub quiz on a Thursday evening.
We spent two weeks at Quayside Hosue with four gernations of the family aged from 10 months to 87 years and all were accommodated comfortably and happily.

"Location, Location, Location"
If you are reading this because you are thinking of booking Quayside House, then my advice is book it. I you are not considering booking this property, you should!
The location is what makes this place. Its right on the Quay in a small and beautiful village. Kids will love the proximity to the beach, adults will love sitting on the patio, BBQ going, glass of wine in hand, feeling like a million dollars as the world passes by.
The house is perfectly well equipped and is very comfortable, there is very little event the most demanding person could ask for.
.....further advice, if you are staying here, hire a boat so you can explore the estuary and Fowey ay your leisure.

"stunning house, views and location"
We had seen the pictures of the house before we arrived, but pictures alone do not properly reflect the real charm of the house and the quality of everything that has been done to it. The accommodation was fabulous. Very well thought out. Enjoyed our stay immensely.

"A beautiful house in a perfect location"
A super house, with plenty to do in the surrounding area. Prepare yourself for the very steep hill up to the car park, if you are unlucky enough not to get a space on the quay!
Overall a fantastic week in a great setting.

"A wonderful house to enjoy time with family and in a great location for lots of adventures. Quayside suits all ages."
Quayside House is in a lovely spot in Polruan, next to two very good pubs and the passenger ferry to Fowey. We love the views whatever the weather. The house is extremely well appointed and very comfortable for an extended stay. Parking at the quayside and public car parks has never caused any problem and we have always been able to unload and load the cars outside very easily. The children (of all ages) love playing on the beach outside the house when the tide is out.
